Question by Sis C: What camera is good for filmmaking?
I want to make films(short and student) and would like to purchase a good camera that I can use for a long time. My school offers a Panasonic DVX100a, does anyone know of a better camera or any suggesstions on the type of camera I should be using?

Well that is kind of a broad question. It is really going to depend on your budget and editing workflow ( what file format is ideal for you).
If you have tons of cash, get the RED 1. Only 40K.
If you want to go DSLR video, get the Canon 5D mark II or the Panasonic GH1
If you want some more like a traditional video camera, Consider a Canon XL2 or the Panasonic mentioned.
If you want to go super low budget, get the Kodak Zi8.
